Duckling Update

I really, truly, honestly didn't forget to update y'all on our duckling hatch! But with this lovely weather, I've been outside in the garden when not in the barn, or at a goat show! :-/

So without further ado...

We ended up with two teeny, tiny ducklings!


Bad picture, sorry. :-/  There was a total of 6 eggs in the incubator, but two died at three weeks into the incubation, and then the other two died after pipping (cracking) the eggshell. :( 

But I at least got these two, so I'm happy.

I am so excited for you!!! The kids are too.

I think it is a blessing you had two. What would have happened if only one made it? What a blessing not to worry about that.

I thought it odd though that it all went in pairs. Two gone bad at 3 wks, two at pipping, and two now in the brooder. : )

Interesting.

Have a great day!
